“Eating a high sugar diet accelerates the aging process”, says Heidi Waldorf, MD director of laser and cosmetic surgery at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital.
When we say “sugar” I am referring to refined processed sugar like the kind you find in cupcakes, cookies, Twinkies and soda. Not natural sugar that occurs in fruits.
It happens when the sugar in your bloodstream gets bound to collagen and elastin, the stuff that keeps your face plump and tight. The process is called gycation. Without collagen and elastin, your face starts to sag leading to wrinkles.
But there is hope!
Cutting your sugary treats to just one small serving a day can have you seeing less wrinkles in as little as one month.
Love your Twinkies more than your youth? Besides feeding cancer cells, here’s a host of reasons to cut back on the powdery white stuff.
